This fascinating new exhibition of 22 photographic portraits by Donald MacLellan celebrates the growing prominence of Scottish actors in contemporary cinema. This is the exhibition's first showing in the UK, following a preview at the Cannes Film Festival in May.
Included in the exhibition are Ewan MacGregor, Kelly Macdonald and Robert Carlyle, who rose to fame in Danny Boyle's 1996 film of Irvine Welsh's Trainspotting. Dougray Scott (This Year's Love and the forthcoming Mission Impossible 2) also features in the exhibition, along with Alan Cumming, Tilda Swinton, Brian Cox and many other prominent Scottish film actors. MacLellan has dedicated the exhibition to the renowned Scottish actor Ian Bannen.
Born in Scotland, Donald MacLellan is an established portrait photographer contributing to national and international newspapers and magazines. His first exhibition Black Power profiled the achievements of black British professionals and was exhibited at the National Portrait Gallery in 1998 and acquired for the collection.
